Adult Sunday School meets at 9:30 a.m. during the school year. Nursery care and Sunday School for children and youth happen simultaneously. Offerings vary from discussions of book and video resources to Bible study and special presentations of current topics and events. We strive to offer classes that both challenge and support you on your faith journey. Past offerings have included:
- Beyond the Dream: The Life and Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. for Contemporary Christians
- Book studies on Being Mortal by Atul Gawande, An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor, and Pastors Sound Off: Causes We Can't Keep Quiet About
- Courses on gender identity, aging, Christmas carols, understanding the Bible
- Visits from the wider community including a class on Respecting Indigenous Cultures, a visit from Rabbi Moti Rieber, discussion with transgender activist Stephanie Mott

The Tuesday Bible Club will resume its meetings on August 24th. Our first book of the fall will be Amy Jill Levine's new book, The Difficult Words of Jesus. In this book, Levine takes on six of the most confounding words spoken by Jesus -- words that both challenge and confuse us (e.g., are we really supposed to sell all our possessions and give all the proceeds to the poor?!). Levine helps us to understood how those words would have been understood when Jesus first spoke them. And she helps us to grapple with the meaning of those words for our own times. Best of all, the class will include short video comments from Levine herself. Please join us! For more information, contact Pastor Sue.
